Kate Hope Day with If, Then
Join us for an evening with Kate Hope Day, author of "If, Then".
“The earth trembles. She tastes metal. That’s how it starts on a moonless Sunday in Clearing, Oregon, in the shadow of the dormant volcano locals call Broken Mountain.” IF, THEN centers on four neighbors—an ambitious surgeon, her husband who is a wildlife scientist, their young neighbor reeling from the recent death of her mother, and another neighbor who is a new mother—and how they find their lives upended when they begin to see themselves in a parallel reality. At first the visions are relatively benign, but they grow increasingly troubling and more frequent. And when a natural disaster threatens them all, it becomes clear that the visions were not what they first seemed, and their hometown will never be the same. IF, THEN is about the choices we make that shape our lives, as well as a reimagining of the forces we can control—and those we cannot.
